Commentary: Ploy to divide and destroy will not work with Pinoys
Tacloban City (October 31) -- The continuous ploy of the opposition to divide to administration the administration and its allies will never work.
Time and again the Administration has shown how unity will unite the people. In these trying times, the administration will once again show the detractors that it is united with its allies behind the good cause of pursuing the economic takeoff and political renewal that has already started through the firm resolution of the President and with the people's support and willingness to sacrifice.
Who are the detractors trying to fool? The Administration or the people? Both are not blind to the political innuendos which the detractors are capable of doing just to attain their selfish interests and agenda.
The anonymous news report which alleged that it was Malacanang which dumped the People's Initiative because the President feared a coup from Speaker de Venecia is not only preposterous but also unbelievable, ridiculous and absurd.
Indeed, this is a product of a desperate source who is out to break up the good relationship between Malacanang and the House of Representatives.
Speaker Joe de Venecia remains a steadfast ally of the administration and there is no way to break the strong institutional bond between the Presidency and Congress to serve the cause of the people.
The country has gained the momentum to unite and work together to continue the country's march towards economic growth and prosperity, towards peace and development.
No one can drive a wedge to debilitate than momentum. Intrigues and speculations will not break asunder the common vision of a peaceful, progressive and united Philippine society.
Absolutely irresponsible, nothing can be farther from the truth, nothing more than a political intrigue - these are how the Filipinos react to the allegations.
Those who started spreading the allegations should have known that the Filipino people will not buy the idea because any ploy to destroy another will always not work well with the Filipinos. (PIA 8) [top]
